I have professionally worked with many of the attorneys at Montlick and find each attorney to exhibit exemplary ethics and professionalism. They treat their clients with utmost respect and I would recommend my family to any of the attorneys in the firm.
Attorney Alyssa White & Antonia Morris were great to work with. They were accessible to answer questions and always provide timely responses and continuous updates of the process.

Montlick and Associates at Executive Park in Atlanta, Ga have been the most professional and customer service oriented firm I've had the pleasure of working with despite the circumstance I was in. They were able to assist me with 1 case successfully in December 2019.I recently needed additional assistance in October 2023 for a 2nd case. This time Montlick and Associtates could not directly assist me due to the nature of my request, but they were able to point me into the right direction on where I can receive attorney services.That was such a huge relief! Thank you to Nick Vocino and his office and team!
I couldn’t have chosen a better law firm to handle the case of my accident which was not my fault! Jason Saltzman was my attorney and he was amazing and he didn’t leave any stones unturned! He worked for the absolute most for me and got me the care I needed ! And Esmeralda, his senior legal assistant, was always there when I had questions and would always email me back very quickly if I had questions and she and Jason really put my mind at ease while going through all of this ! He got me the maximum of what I deserved and worked hard on my case! I’d give them 100 stars if I could because they are the best! I’d recommend them anytime any day for anyone who needs an attorney who cares and one that will answer you no matter what and answer any questions that you may have ! Thank you so much Jason and Esmeralda !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Although the circumstances that led me to Montlick and Associates were not pleasant, this firm was a joy to work with. Nick Vocino and his team, especially "Amber Starks: ("AmberfromMrVocinosoffice"). They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional at all times. They paid close attention to items that I thought were "little things" and answered all of my concerns. They made my family feel important and treated us as such. Thank you for your hard work. I would certainly recommend this firm to others, especially my family and friends.
This firm & the team are amazing! Attorney David Rubin, Michael, Lauren & Bobby are some of the best people! They are hardworking & caring.

We'll Focus on Winning So You Can Focus on Healing

Atlanta is a bustling, unique city. With a population of nearly 500,000 people, Atlanta has continued to shape culture through its history, enterprise, and music.

One of the most populous cities in the U.S., walking is a common way to get around for tourists and locals alike. Unfortunately, the abundance of pedestrians means the likelihood of hit-by-car accidents rises. The aftermath of a pedestrian accident in Atlanta can be physically, emotionally and financially overwhelming. Navigating insurance claims, legal matters, and the physical recovery associated with your accident is added stress on top of the trauma of the accident itself. You don’t have to face this alone. We deal with the insurance companies while you focus on your recovery.

What You Need To Know About Pedestrian Accidents in Atlanta

When pedestrians must walk in close proximity to motor vehicles, the risk of serious injury caused by driver error, distraction or indifference is substantial. When Atlanta urban planners fail to take adequate steps to provide barriers that separate pedestrians from motorists, the probability of a pedestrian accident on Atlanta streets and roadways increases dramatically. Atlanta has been rated among the most dangerous cities for pedestrians in the U.S., and Atlanta motor vehicles strike an average of 3 pedestrians per day. In a recent study of major metros, Atlanta was ranked as the 11th most dangerous city for pedestrians. When you or someone you love is injured while walking or jogging in Atlanta or surrounding suburban cities, an unsafe driver that strikes a pedestrian and/or the city that fails to develop or maintain a safe roadway may be liable for any resulting injuries. Our Atlanta pedestrian accident attorneys have been helping accident victims since 1984. Call today to find out how we can help you too.

Staggering Statistics

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, 40% of pedestrian injuries resulted from contact with the vehicle, 32% from contact with the ground and 26% from contact with unknown objects.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Many innocent pedestrians are injured by the careless and inattentive actions of drivers of cars, trucks and SUVs. While no two pedestrian accidents are exactly alike, some of the most common causes of hit-by-car accidents include:

Distracted Drivers: Many drivers are inattentive and pre-occupied with such activities as using mobile phones to call and text, reading documents and newspapers, applying makeup or other tasks that result in drivers devoting less than their full attention to the road.

Excessive Speed: Drivers who violate the speed limit or drive too fast for heavy traffic or adverse weather conditions cause many pedestrian accidents. A vehicle that is moving at a high rate of speed exponentially increases the likelihood of a pedestrian accident resulting in serious fatalities. At 20 miles per hour, there is only a 10% chance that a pedestrian will be killed in a collision. At 40 miles per hour, the likelihood that a pedestrian will be killed increases to 90%.

Failure to Obey Traffic Signals: Intersections can be very dangerous for pedestrians who must enter the roadway. Drivers who are rushing or not paying attention can run stop signs or red lights and collide with pedestrians crossing the street in a crosswalk. Almost 24% of pedestrian accidents occur at intersections.

Poorly Designed Roadways: A governmental entity may be partially liable for a pedestrian accident resulting from poor roadway design or maintenance. Common examples of roadway design or maintenance issues that may contribute to a pedestrian accident include a lack of traffic signals, overhanging trees and vegetation reducing visibility, unsafe pedestrian crossings, school district negligence, inadequate warning signs and lax enforcement of traffic laws.

Failure to Check Behind Vehicle: Nearly half of all pedestrian accidents involving children ages 1 to 4 occur when a vehicle is backing up in the driveway. Approximately 50 children are injured or killed every week as a result of vehicles backing up.

Drunk Drivers: Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol have slower response time and decreased judgment and decision-making skills. This means they often do not respond quickly to pedestrians crossing the roadway.

Failure to Watch for Children: Many children are hurt in pedestrian accidents with vehicles that do not obey slower speed limits in school zones or heed flashing red lights on school buses.

Sadly, pedestrian accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. The human body just cannot withstand being struck by a 3,000 to 5,000 pound car, or an 80,000 pound tractor trailer. Unfortunately, the serious nature of a pedestrian accident typically means that the types of injuries suffered in a pedestrian accident often involve substantial medical costs, painful and extensive rehabilitative therapy and lifelong medical care. Pedestrians’ head, legs, and arms are the most vulnerable in an accident. Pedestrians often endure extreme bodily injuries including the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Coma
